Is the Wits University and Gauteng health department lifesaving deal on the road to nowhere?

The Gauteng public health system is a precious national asset. In addition to providing healthcare to more than 10 million people, it trains a large number of the country’s doctors and specialists. It serves as the training and research platform for the Faculty of Health Sciences at Wits University, South Africa’s biggest medical school with the highest number of graduating doctors. But, for a decade it has been synonymous with dysfunction, corruption, maladministration and death.
